Excellent way to spend an hour learning more about Buddhism and what happens if you don't follow the gospel. Very graphic statutes and scenes with descriptions of each event in both English and Thai.

This is not for the feint hearted. It has quite scary and brightly painted statues of the things that could happen to you if you should end up in hell and have misbehaved.
